TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) -- A case management hearing was held Friday, August 7th, for a Tallahassee man accused of killing a woman and three children.
Henry Segura is being charged with the death of Brandi Peters and her three children, whose bodies were found inside their home on Saddle Creek Run, back in November 2010.
Segura denies any involvement, and his lawyer, Chuck Hobbs, filed a motion to dismiss the murder charges, saying that DNA evidence was withheld from the defense and could have hindered interviewing another person of interest.
The motion was denied, but the judge granted Hobbs and his team leave to look into the case to potentially have a DNA expert testify on the future trial.
"One of the most important aspects of this case is the fact that there is no DNA that would tend to implicate our client, Henry Segura, including foreign substances found under the finger nails of the victim Brandi Peters", said Hobbs, "That was not Henry Segura's DNA either found under her nails."
Hobbs's team is partnering with the Pumphrey & Prince law firm on this case.
He says the next case management hearing will be held on October 7th to determine when the official trial will begin.
